Window Treatments

Improve Comfort. Save Energy.

Solar screen and solar film rebates are available to El Paso Electric’s commercial customers.

Solar screens are fit externally to the window frame and are partially transparent. They act to reduce the amount of direct sunlight entering the window and cut down overall glare without fully blocking the view or eliminating air flow. As a result, solar screens help reduce cooling costs.

Solar films are retrofitted to the glass surface to help save on energy costs, maintain a more comfortable and productive environment, reduce interior fading, and improve exterior appearance.

The Knowledge You Need.

Available only to commercial customers in El Paso Electric’s New Mexico service area.

  • Solar screens and solar film may be installed on any orientation other than NORTH facing glass.
  • Space must be cooled by refrigerated air conditioning (DX or Chilled Water) and heated by gas or heat pump

The following pre-existing conditions cannot apply:

  • Low-E windows
  • Existing solar film or solar screens
  • Existing awnings or curtains
  • Exterior overhangs

NOTE: New Construction projects are NOT eligible to receive a rebate.
